Last night several members of the local “food media” were invited to attend an event at the Wine Cask titled “Welcome to the Chef’s Counter.” I was lucky enough to be included on the invite list.
When I arrived at the Wine Cask the first thing I noticed was the private dining room with a big table all setup for dinner. I immediately struck up a conversation with several attendees. I was served a delicious drink in a finely crafted glass. I handed out a stack of business cards and received a stack of business cards. I took a bunch of pictures. I was surprised, however, that I was the only one who seemed to know anything about local restaurants.
After about 15 minutes it dawned on me that everyone I had met was a financial advisor and wearing a suit. I was at Wine Cask sure enough, but I was at the WRONG event. I had accidentally crashed a party put on by a division of Wells Fargo. I had a great time, however, and hope they invite me back!
